Check out what's happening in the Revolve world
Despite a dire weather forecast, the weekend wasn't too shabby. Nicole's monthly excursion took us up to the Wind Turbine and down to Red Rocks. There was even a mobile barista at the top...setting a new standard for monthly rides, ha!
On the event front, it's that time of the year when we're starting to think about the Taupo Challenge! There are heaps of events (road and MTB), and we'll be throwing in a few rides here and there to get you ready for the big day. Check out more info about the event HERE.
Let's Ride!
THIS Thursday 8 August, 6pm at Polhill
Join Camp mum Faith at Polhill! Depending on group/weather etc. will probably go up to the Wind Turbine and back down. An intermediate ride, about 1.5-2 hours. Make sure you're night lights are working, and bring some warm layers. Meet at the grassy park at end of Aro St at 6pm.
Saturday's Weekly Road Ride
3 August, meeting at On Yer Bike
Join camp mum Natalia this week! We'll be heading to Eastborne for a coffee. This is a lovely flat ride (but does include a bit of the motorway). It will be approximately 50kms of harbor bliss :) Meet at 8am at On Yer Bike, 181 Vivian Street
